Building on a strong track-record in surveying
We offer a wide range of services in the field of ecological, biological, physical and chemical surveying in the aquatic environment, and are able to assist with all aspects of the project from the survey design stage, through fieldwork and sample analysis, to data analysis and reporting.
Key marine surveys include:
Chemistry and sediment analyses are also undertaken as part of our research methodology.
Fieldwork varies from intertidal sampling or biotope mapping through to subtidal coastal water surveys using a variety of boat-deployed sampling gear. Prior to conducting any fieldwork a full risk assessment is undertaken assuring our staff are working in the safest possible manner. Our survey staff are fully trained and hold appropriate safety and medical certification; extending to the UK Offshore Operators Association (UKOOA) medical and Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training (BOSIET) certification. We own a variety of the more commonly used sampling gear and are able to respond to the diverse requirements of different surveys.
As can be seen from the map (right) we have processed samples from hundreds of sites around the UK for multiple projects over the past 25 years.
